Richard Henry Pratt informs Commissioner of Indian Affairs R. E. Trowbridge that Sheldon Jackson has arrived with 11 new potential Pueblo students. Pratt states that he'll send an official physician report on the student once it's finished. So far, the school doctor has found two students to have lung problems and "a low state of vitality."
